Mad Merc’s Gaming Gazette Issues 32 To 40 Are Now Online!

Checkered Demon Logo SmallDuring the early 90’s I published a newsletter that I emailed out to anyone who would listen. At the time my audience was comprised primarily of gaming buddies and folks on the Checkered Demon BBS. Each issue is like a collection of mini blog posts. 😉

Topics vary from issue to issue but focus on Hero Games product reviews/rules, video game reviews, comic book reviews, and other miscellaneous news items that would be appropriate for my gaming group. Looking back I think doing the small reviews in these issues whet my appetite for the type of more in depth reviews that I am performing now on this very blog.

You can find copies of the currently posted issues at this URL:

Issues 32 to 40 include the following highlights:

  • John Turner tells the story of his mysterious superhero character Sparkle.
  • Comments on the top 10 computer games in 1992 from Computer Gaming World, Software Publishers Association, and Entertainment Advertisement.
  • An article on Call Of Cthulhu’s influence on role-playing games.
  • Reviews of Swords Of Shar Pei and Shade:The Changing Man comics by The Kid
  • Reviews of Strike Force and Western Hero.
  • More funny gaming quotes!

More issues are coming soon! Watch this blog for details! 🙂
